Postby dandymcgee on Tue Feb 21, 2012 1:26 am

So apparently Microsoft has been running a contest since August of 2011 that ends April 1, 2012.

Microsoft wrote:The inaugural Microsoft BlueHat Prize contest challenges security researchers to design a novel runtime mitigation technology designed to prevent the exploitation of memory safety vulnerabilities. The solution considered to be the most innovative by the Microsoft BlueHat Prize board will be presented the grand prize of US $200,000.

First prize: $200,000 (USD)
Second prize: $50,000 (USD)
Third prize: MSDN Universal subscription valued at $10,000 (USD)

I've heard no news of this anywhere.. did anyone else even know it was going on?
